Spiritual Warfare: 'Lies Disguised as Truth'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, May 2, 2023

The Spirit says clearly that in later times some believers will desert the Christian faith. They will follow spirits that deceive, and they will believe the teachings of demons. These people will speak lies disguised as truth. Their consciences have been scarred as if branded by a red-hot iron.
— 1 Timothy 4:1-2 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, it's disturbing to realize that there are some Christians listening to demons and believing their awful lies. It's scary that demons can use believers to lead other believers astray. But I know now that this is possible, so help me to be on my guard. Please have Your Spirit to show me when teaching is false. I love Your truth, and don't want to see it become diluted, Lord, so please open my eyes to this sort of deception. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
